Trivia

Katherine Heigl's character was Katharine Hepburn's stand-in. Permission was not granted to use Hepburn's name, so references to Rita Hayworth were dubbed in post-production. See more »

Goofs

Rita Hayworth was not a star in 1937. It's unlikely she had a stand-in at that time. See more »

Dreadful
30 September 2003 | by (New Jersey) – See all my reviews

This is a dreadful, amateurish production, that wastes the talents of some good actresses, but they seem to have received no direction. Another viewer pointed out the inaccuracies, but there's a big one--in 1937, Rita Hayworth was not a star. She had made a few movies under the name Rita Cansino, but was not on the equal plain then with Davis, Garbo, Dietrich, etc. She hit it big in the early forties, especially with Gilda. When I first saw her character in the movie, I thought she was dressed like Katharine Hepburn, which would have been a better choice.
